Move submitter information to bottom of resource page

Currently submitters are listed with authors. This creates a bit of confusion as to who is the author of the material. I would suggest moving submitter information to the bottom of the resource page below time/location/etc. Where there would be a label “submitted by” followed by the list of submitters. For a good example of such a resource, see: http://nanohub.org/resources/11392

    Could you please clarify: The example resource you mention has four people listed as “submitter”. There was code added recently that breaks the submitter (as in the person who added the resource to the hub) to a different line in the “about” tab. However, since a resource technically can only have one ‘created_by’ entry, the multiple “submitters” in your example is confusing. Do you mean “contributor” (as in, “Contributions by …”)? If not, how is it possible to have multiple submitters?

    Hi Shawn, We are actually referring to the list of contributors who are marked as submitters. Yes one may have technically “created” the resource, but we find multiple submitters which will allow multiple users to edit the resource. Thus in this case 3 submitters and one actual contributor. We only want to list submitters at the bottom if there are actual contributor records so designated. If none then nothing. Thanks, joe
